5.0 out of 5 stars 10 Stars For The Music!, April 21, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Live at the Top (DVD)
First, here's the only bad news: the vintage sound recording on this DVD is worth only 2-3 stars, based on what the current-day listener is used to. It sounds sometimes like the portable tape recordings kids used to make at concerts like this. This is not as serious a flaw as it might be on another music DVD, however, first because so little film of Maynard Ferguson in concert is around at all and, most importantly, because the music and live performance itself is worth 10 stars! Those who saw Maynard and his great young musicians in person during the 1970's well remember the excitement they could generate and sustain for as long as they cared to play these amazing arrangements and inspired solos, and that's captured here about as well as it can be on film. Maynard is a great talent and musical original, a tireless supporter of young musicians who has, himself, given countless workshops and high school concerts, and a very nice, down-to-earth, friendly guy in person to fans and audiences. Anyone who has ever enjoyed listening to even one of his recordings should be thrilled by this DVD;I doubt you can sit still through these numbers. In addition, the price makes it one of the bargains of the year! Extras include a musical slide show, audio tracks of a hot concert at Carnegie Hall, and a spoken introduction by a fan who was there the night this show was filmed. Maynard's fans are among the most loyal in the world and the availability of this DVD will have them rejoicing and wanting more!
